    Python Machine Learning Titanic Kaggle

    All aboard the Titanic. Your task, if you choose to accept it, pick a character on the Titanic. Then, you must build a machine algorithm to predict if you survived.

    Now that you are afraid of dying, what's the best way to predict your survivorship?

    Python Pandas and Numpy. If you want to learn how to build a machine learning algorithm check us out next Saturday at 1 pm in the Hillsboro Brookwood Library. We be using the Kaggle dataset to build our code.

    Rose City SPIN Seminar: Moving to Agile Development presented by Ray Arell

    Rose City Software Process Improvement (SPIN) Seminar [free event, open to public]

    Title: Moving to Agile Development: What Went Right, What Went Wrong

    Presenter: Ray Arell

    Dates/Times: Thursday, February 11th, 2010; Networking @ 6:00 PM; Seminar 7:00-8:00 PM

    Location: Hillsboro Main Library, Main Library Meeting Room, 2850 NE Brookwood Parkway, Hillsboro, OR 97124

    Abstract: A while ago I went into my software staff and declared “Hey! We are going Agile!” Yep, I read an Agile project management book on a long flight to India, and like all good reactionary development managers I was sold! A few years later our adaptation of the Scrum framework has taken shape, but it was not without strain on our development, test, and other Q/A processes. This session focuses on a retrospective of what went right and more importantly what went wrong as we evolved to our new development process and the effect it had on our team. Perhaps it will convince you that the shift to Agile is the way to go, and hopefully give you just a little more info on what you may be in for.
